A statement said: "There is a possibility under specific driving conditions the engine's plastic inlet manifold may melt and deform."
Use small gasoline torch to heat inlet manifold and carburetor; remove spark plugs and warm them; prime cylinders and no trouble should be had in starting motor." I wonder how many destroyed tractors and barns resulted from using a blowtorch on a carburetor with just one tiny leak.
IN the 1970s we were encouraged to connect a colour coded vacuum gauge to our car engine's inlet manifold, and (to save fuel) drive keeping the pointer in the green sector, which even the most gullible anoraks ignored after a few days!
Smart meters for witless politicians THOSE who were educated before comprehensives, those who can still multiply and divide without a calculator and thought nothing of servicing and repairing their own car; were conned in the 1970s into connecting a colour coded vacuum gauge to their car engine's inlet manifold, then driving keeping the pointer in the green sector, which even the anoraks ignored after a few miles!
CVVD provides an additional level of efficiency on top of advanced GDi fuel injection, which delivers highly pressurized fuel directly into the combustion chamber, rather than via an inlet manifold, and turbocharging, which uses a turbine to force additional air into the combustion chamber.
investigated the effect of water injection through the inlet manifold on ignition delay, rate of heat release and emission of an automotive direct injection diesel engine.
The engine is the twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre in-line six cylinder and features a new water-injection system that sprays water vapour into the inlet manifold. This cools the air going into the engine, which reduces knock and allows higher boost pressure and earlier injection timing.
The incoming tube-side mass flow is distributed by the inlet manifold into all the flat tubes, and streams in different tubes will enter the exit manifold, remix, and finally exit the manifold.
The reduction of altitude from the test location was simulated by increasing the inlet manifold pressure using a Roots blower.
